How demons enter children

SATAN has devised ways to thwart God’s primary strategy to exert His will on earth.


God desires a godly offspring to exert His will on earth, according to Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, be fruitful and increase in number,  fill the earth and subdue it, rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves in the ground .”


To interfere with this divine plan, Satan came up with many schemes mainly by targeting children.


He seeks to destroy  the “protective walls” around a child and once this wall is broken, evil spirits enter and start to manifest by forming destructive habits that will not stop until they are kicked out.


Satan’s strategy is to block children while they as young as possible. His options are, however, limited and he must operate within the boundaries of  “legal rights.”


Legal Right


A legal right is the spiritual permission that allows Satan to send in demons to torment the child.


Unless Satan is given a legal right he cannot do anything. It is like a doorway that he must use to enter the life of the child.


Satan keeps on looking for it- an opening to squeeze through. He constantly looks  for the open doorway.


According to Proverbs 26:2a curse without a cause cannot land.” This means if an attack happens, there was a legal ground, a doorway that was open and the enemy used it to enter.


Listen to what Pastor Nellie has to say about the six doorways Satan  uses to enter to wreak havoc in a child’s life:

1.Pre-natal influence


A baby being a spirit can hear, right from the womb, and listens keenly to what is said through the mother’s ears.


It may hear that they are “unwanted,”  “worthless,”  “despised” or “rejected,” causing it to be insecure, even afraid of  being terminated.


Pregnant women who may want to close this door against Satan are advised to speak to the unborn child telling them  “God loves you,” and “You are wanted,” as “You have a purpose!”


You may ask God about what is written in their book of destiny in accordance to Jeremiah 1:5  “Before  I formed you in the womb I knew you , before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (NIV).


Pastor Nellie advices young mothers to speak positively to their unborn children.


According to the pastor, an environment of strife in the home where there are constant fights, bickering, anger outbursts and frequent argument opens the doorway(s) for Satan to send in tormenting demons to the unborn child.

2. Birthing trauma


Children  born prematurely, or through C-Section or even after prolonged labour have “open doorways.”


Babies born out of wedlock and under circumstances that deny them adequate bonding with the mother equally are  prone to demonic attacks, says pastor Nellie.

3. Childhood trauma


Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing event and can be as a result of  physical injury followed by emotional shock. It comes with symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety and obsessive behaviour.


Rejection,  abandonment and  chronic sickness may cause babies to be fearful or anxious. This can open them up to  severe spiritual attacks.

4.Inherited curses


A curse is a spoken word that is capable of bringing a supernatural effect upon a person’s life. Something could have been spoken that is affecting the child or it may have been borne out of parents who worshipped another god according to Exodus 20: 3-5 ” You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation  of those who hate me.” (NIV).


 Lamentations 5:7 says ” Our fathers sinned and are no more and we bear their punishment.” (NIV).


And, Deuteronomy 18: 10-11 “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, practices divination or sorcery , interprets omens, engages in witchcraft or casts spells or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.” (NIV).


Negative words spoken in anger  are curses. However, the person must have some authority over the child for example, the parent, teacher, doctor or pastor for the curse to affect the child’s life.


Parents must learn to speak differently over their children’s lives, says pastor Nellie.

5. Lack of Discipline


Many parents inadvertently open doorways for Satan when they fail to discipline their children for fear of losing their affection, pastor Nellie says.


Proverbs 13:24 tells us,He who spares the rod hates his son but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.”  (NIV).


Proverbs 22:6 “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (NIV).


Proverbs 22:15 “Folly is bound up in the heart of a child but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.” (NIV).


Discipline, according to pastor Nellie, is not a child’s problem, it is a parent’s problem. Some parents lack  consistency in applying discipline or are too tired to instill  discipline, she says.


Always remember, we do not punish for mistakes we punish for disobedience.

6. Child molestation


Molestation opens an express doorway for demonic attacks in a child’s life. Unfortunately, molesters are most of the time relatives or care-givers and friends of the child’s parents.


Children are easily molested since they trust adults and are afraid to report “because parents won’t believe me.”


We must protect our children at all costs.
